Old World Charm
St. Augustine Fort Weddings
Looking for a unique space for your upcoming wedding? Castillo De San Marcos is the oldest masonry fort in North America. The fort was built over 340 years ago by the Spanish to protect the waterways around St. Augustine. The age and timeless beauty of the fort adds depth and drama to any event.
For years Sun and Sea has performed weddings and events at the Fort. It is one of our favorite spots to both decorate and photo. After dinners and entertainment are logistically easy with the fort being located right in the heart of the historic district. A horse and carriage ride can also be reserved to carry the couple to the destination post ceremony.
The landscape surrounding the Fort provide multiple layers for photography. The St. Augustine lighthouse can be seen in the backdrop along with the waterway and large mason wall. There is an application fee of $100 and a ranger cost of $60 per hour to have a wedding at this location. The fort also does not perform weddings until after park closing, which is normally after 5pm. This means we are not permitted to do morning weddings, only late afternoon.
